The SC Council on the Holocaust is sponsoring a free showing of the documentary “Big Sonia” at the


Columbia Jewish Community Center (306 Flora Dr) on 

Monday, July 17 at 8 pm.

You are welcome to attend. The film is 93 minutes in length.  


“National treasure”, local celebrity, Holocaust Survivor – Sonia (89) has just been served an eviction notice for the last (and most popular) shop left in a dying suburban mall. Following Sonia on the motivational speaker circuit to schools and prisons - even as she navigates her own struggles - BIG SONIA explores what it means to be a survivor and how trauma is passed down through generations. Will you let your trauma define you? Or will your past make you stronger?
